Mountains Green, sparkling streams. Early Christian Worship. Hobo Dinners. Sitting under a vast array of stars while a campfire blazes before you. Baptisms in the Tecolote. Hermit Peak. Precious friendships. No matter how long it has been since each of us were at Camp Blue Haven, these formative experiences have made lasting imprints on our hearts.

• Celebrating 60 years of Christian Camping
• Over 50,000 registrants
• 3084 baptized in the Tecolote

Come celebrate Camp Blue Haven’s rich heritage and exciting future with us this Labor Day Weekend!

All meals will be provided at camp during the weekend at nodining hall 2 charge, beginning with breakfast on Saturday and concluding with breakfast on Monday. Light snack foods will be available Friday night, followed by dessert cookouts and devotionals by the decades.
